Bike America is a multi-state, multi-generational odyssey to discover our obsession with happiness. Penny is searching to bring more meaning into her life, to find a lifestyle that suits her and a town that feels like a home. Meet Prologue’s cast of 7 as Bike America pedals the audience along a cross-country bike trip from Boston to California, with stops in big cities and small towns along the way.
It’s truly an event with a difference. Prologue invites everyone to get off their couches and join their 4,000 Mile Challenge which takes off July 25, and travels the coast-to-coast route of the play. Bike, run, walk – indoors or outdoors. My Virtual Mission app will logs the mileage and Prologue will supply fresh content of the places visited in the play. Details will be sent to all who register here. A benefit for Prologue Theatre

Dark Horse Theatre Company
Starts July 25
An amateur group of ghost hunters camps out in the haunted and infamous Hunterville House only to end up encountering more then they bargained for. A fast-paced comedy for online theatre filled with laughs, ghosts, and face paint. A Q&A with cast, crew, and the playwright follows the performance.
Note: Due to the poor audio quality of this production, we have removed the original TV version of Cinderella on the Rodgers & Hammerstein’s YouTube network from this list.
July 25, starts at 1pm ET
The National Theatre of Greece
We rarely list one day events here, but make an exception for this extraordinary international event: the live streamed performance of The Persians and its preceding one hour tour of the ancient theater of Epidaurus. Written in 470 BC, this performance of The Persians, Aeschylus’ tragedy about the defeat of Xerxes’ navy at the Battle of Salamis is, in the words of the company, “an omen that Aeschylus says to the then modern Athenian public: Be careful not to become arrogant.” In Greek with English captions.
The Royal Ballet
July 24, 2pm – August 6
Set to Tchaikovsky’s romantic score, this was the first dance performed by The Royal Ballet when it launched in 1946. Recorded earlier this year, this mounting stars Fumi Kaneko as the title character and Federico Bonelli as her prince, and the choreography is an amalgam of Marius Petipa’s 19th-century steps and new movement created for the troupe by Frederick Ashton, Anthony Dowell and Christopher Wheeldon.
